ATTENTION: I found an issue in the original 'gettrace' which will remove all files in a directory structure!!!! Use updated version!!!
'gettrace' (shell script) requires curl and w3m to be installed.
Syntax: gettrace <user> <password> <host:port> <outdir>
It will download all the traces files in the history of iMonitor to a directory, and strip off the html tags.
